santana30 is on a distinguished road
I have cracks on my santana 30 keel , I graind the fiverglass and the cracs are in the lead also 2 foot from the botom a horizontal crack a foot long and another one 3 foot up and forward.
it is an encapsulated lead keel, anyone knows if the bolts on this boat are J shaped, some mayor work is coming , but i'll wil not give up.
I have think if the case is that the bolta are j shaped, to cut windows on it and replaced them. it is a 1974 old racer probably it had suffer alot of strss on his life, but the fiverglass still holding up good, with no blisters.
